Stop #5- Adams House

This home takes its design from the Arts and Crafts movement–particularly, the Craftsman style house popularized by Gustav Stickley in the early 20th century. There are numerous examples of this style home in the Frenchtown District, most dating back to the original time period. 


Built by Al Droste & Sons this home is a modern adaptation of the style and uses mostly maintenance free exterior construction materials. The Landmarks Board awarded this house a Certificate of Recognition for Sensitive Infill New Construction in a Historic District in 2017.
